Lethal Remedy

Staphylococcus luciferus - also known as the Killer by those in the medical community. This is the super bug of all because there is no known drug to treat it. Those who come down with the diagnosis will die unless a cure is found.

Dr. Jack Ingersol is just the man! In his recent study into antibiotics, he believes he has discovered the miracle drug, known as Jandramycin named after the pharmaceutical Jack works for Jandra Pharamceuticals, when administered for 10 days intravenously, the patient recovers with no side effects. Now this will not only be the drug that saves lives but will save the career of Dr. Jack Ingersol as well as his struggle pharmaceutical company from ruin.

Dr. John Ramsey has been a doctor for forty years, and has mentored many including Dr. Sara Miles, the ex-wife of Jack Ingersol in his career. Struggling himself to find a purpose in life since losing his wife, he believes he needs to return to being a doctor again and save lives. What he doesn't expect is to be saving not only his own but the life of his fellow colleagues including Sara Miles.

When Sara begins treatment of one of her patients a young teen girl named Chelsea with Jandramycin whose dying from the Killer infection.She soon is well to go home after being at death's door. When Chelsea shows up with paralysis weeks later, Sara soon discovers that she may have just administered a lethal remedy instead.

In the medical suspense thriller, Lethal Remedy by Richard L. Mabry, MD, the reader is taken into the dark world of the clinical trials for a pharmaceutical company that will stop at nothing to make sure this drug is approved and ready for sale. I LOVED this book and being a fan of medical mysteries, this one had me on the edge of my seat and questioned just how safe are the drugs we take on faith today. What would happen if this occurred today? I rate this one a hands down 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait to read more by Richard Mabry in the Prescription for Trouble series. I received this Kindle edition compliments of Abingdon Press and NetGalley for my honest review.
